Fall Dieting: Apples, Tomatoes and Basil, oh my!

It’s fall. You already know how much I love apples, right? My drawer is still chock-full and I eat 2-3 daily. And I made applesauce and I put some in the freezer.

Honey Crisp Apples - U Pick!The other items in my fall diet are tomatoes and basil. Oh my.

I have 5 tomato plants that are quite happy right now. Once I figured out why one plant had tomatoes that were still on the vine but rotten on the bottom (the research suggested that my watering schedule was too erratic and needed some consistency) my crop started to look healthy again.

Ok, so it’s been tomatoes and apples in my life these days. I have other items in the house to eat (um, sometimes) and I never have to worry what else to put on my plate. (Hint – think RED)

Last week I was catching up with a long-distance friend and as I talked I opened the grill, turned it on, lit the match, watched it catch, closed the lid, walked in the house and talked for another 30 minutes or so. The next morning as I was outside trying to be consistent in my tomato watering routine, I noticed the grill was still on. I looked inside and wondered – what did I have for supper? I planned to grill chicken and obviously did not, so what did I have? Probably tomatoes and basil!

Ever done anything like that before? Done it lately? (Please say yes …)

That’s all from Chef Margarita!
